The Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos des Grades Vignes from Chateau de Puligny Montrachet is a lovely effort – from this somewhat overlooked 1er cru. In the bouquet fine red fruit with cherries, raspberries and a lovely core of sweet strawberries – some slightly floral and reduced notes – but a lovely nose. On the palate fine quite airy fruit for a 2009. Good midpalate concentration, with quite a tannic grip and a fine core of delicate sweet fruit. The finish is long and quite intense offering good minerality.… Read the full article →

The Chevalier Montrachet 2007 from Chateau de Puligny Montrachet was surprisingly accessible when tasted from a magnum at Gustavs Bistro in Copenhagen. Very crisp bouquet, with a slight citrus note. Very tight and focused in the nose, with the oak not totally integrated in the fruit. On the palate more accessible, with some creamy notes of fruit playing with the oak. Fine core of fruit and a nice balance. Need time, but was nevertheless a real pleasure. A very fine effort from Etienne de Montille

Wonderful fresh bouquet with beginning mature chardonnay notes combined with a fine minerality and acidity – 2004 at it’s best. Very fine balance with good mature flavors and a excellent freshness. Still not fully mature, but a pure pleasure now. Given the producer and the premox problems I would drink these while they are still fresh.
(from 2011) Fine – 91p
The Montrachet 2000 from Chateau de Puligny Montrachet was made before Etienne de Montille took over the vinification in 2001. The wine is aproaching maturity, with mature notes in both bouquet and on the palate. Quite heavy and a little tired in the fruit – not a masterpeice. Lacks the vibrant acidity and charm of the best wines from the top produceres. The Montrachet terroir does a good job, and is keeping this wine interesting, but in the end the lack of freshness and charm is pulling the wine down.… Read the full article →
